Amazon Warehouse for bargain hunters

Hello dear readers,

Amazon Warehouse for bargain hunters: bargain

Ricc - I blog for you

I confess, I'm frugal. Even if some people already call that stingy. But that's not so wrong. What can I repair, and if I can build things cheaper than buy, why not? To do so, use things or work around them. My wife calls the Messi syndrome because I find it difficult to part with so many important parts. I call it "pick up for later reuse". And anyone who knows my workshop knows that things are going very well with me. Stinginess is finally cool and not a garbage heap. Nevertheless, I am not the type who likes to forego quality and if the expensive tool is better than the discount store, then I'm ready to pay the higher price. That does not mean that I'm ready to pay any price. I can avoid what I can avoid.

Long ways to cheap shopping

Just the days I decided to subject our dishwasher to an intensive cleaning. Because curiously, he no longer consumes salt and always indicates a full supply of salt. That's the way it is. But if I leave the lid open during a wash cycle, so that the compartment is rinsed out, the lack of salt is reported correctly. Ergo, there are some clogged supply lines, so that during operation no water can be pulled out of the salt compartment. The problem is known to me, because some time ago I broke up my dishwasher with my father-in-law to solve the same problem.

But now back to the actual topic. Of course, I also want to change the rubber seal with the maintenance work. The lower one is already swollen and the original form is barely recognizable. At Bosch this costs about 30 € and the second door rubber around 25 € again. Phew, that's not cheap. So I searched for other providers and found it on Amazon. There, the lower rubber is offered for 25 €, the upper, however, for over 30 €. Both from the manufacturer with corresponding part number. May understand who wants - not me. In the end, I ordered the bottom for 25 € and decided that the top is still good. The machine is already old and I do not want to invest that much anymore. Incidentally, I found the Amazon Warehouse Deals.

I still have room in the workshop

I have to take a closer look. The description says the following: These are open and used products, but have the same benefits as other Amazon products. For this purpose, the articles are checked by Amazon and you may even send them back if you do not like it. A manufacturer's warranty does not apply, but the statutory warranty by Amazon. So B-goods with special protection and the ability to say "no" afterwards. Now I have not tested any of them (which will happen for sure), but found some articles that I own and to which I can say something about the used condition. Since I am a secret Bosch fan, I look around for nice offers of Bosch tools.

Bosch PTS 10

There we have one of my beloved tools from my workshop - the Bosch PTS 10. What I was looking for back then to get it cheap. 400 € are not exactly a bargain, but it should be exactly this. In the end I waited for a discount action of a hardware store, with which it anyway already costs a little less and I secured then also the low price guarantee in the construction market of my confidence. We are silent about the final price. For sure I can say that my PTS 10 sawed a few meters of wood after maybe three years. The only drawback is a somewhat cumbersome switch that sometimes has to be operated several times. Nothing that affects the quality of the sawing work. In my view, therefore, a tool that I would buy quite used.

Amazon offers the PTS 10 as Amazon Warehouse Deal for € 322.05, which at first sight, despite the assessment of "how new" quite a bit. Then I noticed that it is the T-variant with foot or table. This costs about 450 € at Bosch and after a quick search on the net, is the cheapest offer from Rubart, where it costs about 350 € shipping. Amazon delivers for 322 € free shipping. I start from "as new", I type on a simple return and would say, because you could strike. Although not the big bargain, but you have 30 days right of return and get the saw delivered to the front door. And I can say from my own experience, the transport when buying in the hardware store will put so many cars before a problem.

Another tool that I liked to work with. "Have" because I now own the battery variant and a blue Bosch. Otherwise, she always accompanied me well and there was nothing to complain about. Amazon offers them with a "cosmetic damage" at the bottom for € 80.78. Favorable offer I found at OBI for about 89 €, which also provide free. The savings are therefore limited, so I would prefer to respect the manufacturer's warranty on the second offer.

How could I live without so long? How can you live in the workshop without a vacuum cleaner? Very important and whoever is equipped with the 18V program from Bosch must have it.

At Amazon he is in "excellent condition" with minor damage to the packaging for 50 € to have. The cheapest offer in the network amounts to about 53 €. So no big hit, but if you buy something on Amazon anyway, you can put it.

In a nutshell, a very fine tool that I recommend to 100%. But the Amazon Warehouse offer is no snapper. € 169 and with a good condition, it is even 10 € more expensive than an online offer in addition there is even the larger 2.5 Ah battery.

Not a Bosch but a very interesting device that does not require torque adjustment, but independently recognizes different loads, such as the penetration of the screw head. Amazon refers to the device as well used and counts as some signs of wear on. Who can live with it makes, with 80 € against 104 € in the net a very good deal.

Conclusion - Not always a snapper, but look worthwhile

The headline says it, who expects to get something is wrong in the Amazon Warehouse. Amazon also wants to make money. It is worthwhile to snorkel and sometimes animate a couple of saved Euronen but then to buy the long desired tool. Even if the savings are sometimes not so great and there are used cheaper in some auction houses, one must not forget that Amazon offers 30-day money back guarantee and also gun power claims can be made. An advantage that one rarely has.
